Ok first off Id like to say that I'm having quite a bit of fun playing this game. The game is fantastic, combat is fluid and engaging, the soft trinity is great, questing is fun, easy to get groups for skirmishes and dungeons and has cooperative and rewarding gameplay, and the foundry is one of the most innovative implementations to the MMO genre in a long time.
Now take everything they've done right with their well venerated IP and take a pay 2 win crap all over it and you've got Neverwinter. The cash shop is full of items to give unfair advantages over other players, and a massive amount of pay for convenience items. It's intrusive and annoying to be constantly be bombarded with reminders of how much better i could be by buying all their overpriced items.
Ok i already know the counterargument, "well why dont you stop freeloading and support the developers". Im not a cheap individual I just dont find paying for random crap all the time fun, and i believe all players should be on a some-what level playing field. If this title was separated from the cash shop and the game systems reworked based on that I'd gladly shell out 60 bucks plus a 15 a month sub, no problem at all.
Im not going to sit here and attack anyone if they like the free to play business model that's their perogative, but i am going to take a stand with my wallet and not support this endeavor. I fear if this project succeeds, which at this point i think it will, then other mmo developers will be more inclined to make their games in Neverwinters image, thus destroying my beloved genre even further. Anyway, just sharing my opinion, dont hate me too much!
